April Vokey lives in British Columbia, and was born with an unexplainable passion for ﬁshing. April is an avid angler and steelhead, salmon and trout guide. As a young girl she coaxed her father into going ﬁshing and by the age of sixteen, when she was old enough to drive, she was devoting all of her free time to her local rivers. She is passionate about Spey casting to wild steelhead, the environment and tying Salmon/Steelhead ﬂies. She has made it her mission to encourage and introduce aspiring anglers to the sport, in hopes that it will bring them as much pleasure as it has brought her. She takes pride in being an eternal student of ﬂy-ﬁshing and an active conservationist.
April is a Federation of Fly Fishers Certiﬁed Casting Instructor and ﬂy-ﬁshing columnist. She is the founder and director of the popular fundraiser, Flies for Fins, and in 2011 she proudly joined the Patagonia ambassador team, where she continues to assist in the design and direction of an upcoming women’s line of ﬁshing apparel.
